1. Be heavy -- check
2. Be flat on the bottom -- yup
3. Fit in the cup (mine was a Breville) -- you betcha
One thing that is not mentioned in any of the top reviews that I read was that the tamper is actually two parts; a head and a handle and they screw into each other.
The inside of the female screw port shows, to my eye, that there is a different sort of metal at the core of the product; you can even see a flake of the metal resting on the bottom of the port in my photo. Most likely it is a cheaper and softer metal used to add weight. I don't entirely know what is on the outside of the product, but I guess that it is stainless steel.
Nonetheless, the item has a nice hefty weight to it and even from looking inside the female screw port you can see a certain level of thickness that the outside steel retains; about a 1/4" would be my guestimate. I'm not sure if that is how thick the steel is over the entire product, and not just how it is at that part of the product, but so far I have not encountered any problems with it.
I was willing to pay the higher price ($10 more) for this product as opposed to one of the other stamps out there because I had read that the others had a thin coat of steel on the outside and the soft metal core could be exposed with a few mere nicks of the surface steel. I don't want to ingest metal flakes of any sort, so I thought it would be worth it to pay triple the price for a long-lasting quality item. I think that is what I have here, but I still need to confirm over time.
NOTE: at first I thought the reddish flaky metal pieces might have been rust, but it wouldn't make sense since I bought the product factory new and it is non-rusting stainless steel.
2) It is flat bottom, not concave (people actual debate the merits of flat vs. concave)
3) It has substantial weight to it (I did not measure it).
4) I measured the diameter with calipers, it is just shy of 51mm (50.98mm if I recall correctly).
5) Used for ~1 year now, NO rust. (I have never washed it, just wipe it down with a wet paper towel)
I paid $26 and it was branded V-tech (or something similar sounding) on this listing when I bought it. It now says generic and is priced closer to $17. The product listing is identical other than the branding.
It wasn't so easy. There are no specs provided by Mr. Coffee, and a lot of conflicting ideas about what is best from online user reviews of different tampers.
This one is the exact diameter of the original. It's very heavy. It's not too expensive. Shipping from China takes some time, but it arrived sooner than promised.
A great replacement if you need one, and, I'd say, a good upgrade, too.
